Recommended fabrics: mixed knitted fabric.

Attention! Fabric consumption varies depending on the size of garment. First of all, print out paper patterns and lay them out at the width of fabric/ knit you plan to use, to see how much fabric you will need.

When sewing the garment, pay attention to notches- they must coincide.



1. Left front part - 1 detail
2. Right front part – 1 detail
3. Left drape – 1 detail
4. Right drape – 1 detail
5. Back part - 1 detail

Our advice: To make the fabric along stitched seams stretch, sew details with narrow zigzag or with special stretchable stitches. To make the hem stretch, oversew hem allowance with special oversew stitches (overlock), and then sew it using double needle. This is also attachable to other edges that should stay elastic.
These recommendations are not for industry.
